During the covid-19 pandemic, every school was under strict order to shut down. But after a two-year gap when the school gets over with either complete or partial closures Delhi Government finally decides to reopen schools on the 1st of April.

Now the government is working to restructure the syllabus for the entire year for its primary and middle school students addressing the pandemic-induced disruption in teaching-learning.

School re-opening for all grades in Delhi creates a sense of responsibility to reconstruct the old syllabus among every teaching faculty. As the students of classes III to IX have not begun with their syllabuses so, the focus instead underlies on foundational reading, writing, and numeracy through its Mission Buniyaad program.

Reduction of the syllabus

A continuation through the course of summer vacations during summer camps, Mission Buniyaad activities are only for students who have been identified as being behind their grade level. However recently, it has been decided to implement these for all students of these grades.

According to the principal advisor, Shailendra Sharma to the Director of Education recovery effort continuation is beyond the 15th of June when summer camp ends, through a ‘dual strategy’.

Students of classes VI to VIII  who are still behind on their foundational competencies will be in an ongoing process of teaching under Mission Buniyaad

Those children who can read ‘advanced stories’, and solve division problems will be carried on to a reduced syllabus.

The academic team is working on a reduced syllabus for the entire year, with the bulk of topics that introduces link with concepts taught in earlier grades. The team charted a downward map of topics, while particularly one is being taught linked topics from previous grades needs to get revised – defined as ‘concept deficit’.The training of teachers will be done accordingly, said Sharma. 

Focus on foundational reading, writing, and math will remain for children learning in younger classes. Those students who have the ability to read and solve division problems will gradually be taken to the concepts of a reduced syllabus.

Efforts done for reconstructing the academic year 2022-2023 and future years in order to fall in place will also need re-thinking. This disruption will take a long time to come in rebuild form.
